May 27, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
RS Components recently extended its portfolio of desktop DLP 3D printers with professional-grade desktop system from market-leading brand EnvisionTEC; the maker’s Perfactory Micro XL printer claims a combination of high print quality and affordability.

The professional-grade Perfactory Micro XL delivers high-resolution print capability within a compact desktop form factor, and connects to a PC via a standard USB connection. It is compatible with proprietary flexible ABS compounds as well as HTM 140, which is ideal for tooling inserts.

With a build envelope of 100 x 75 x 100 mm, Perfactory Micro XL can tackle a wide range of industrial and commercial tasks. XY resolution of 150 µm and dynamic Z resolution of 50-100 µm allow users to build accurate and finely detailed reproductions of objects that have been scanned, computer generated or downloaded from the Internet.

“3D printing is developing quickly and has countless industrial applications, like prototyping electronic enclosures or quickly replicating small components. RS is dedicated to offering the best selection of equipment meeting the needs of our customer base,” said Ben Lawton, Global Head of Tools and Consumables at RS. “Perfactory Micro XL delivers a revolutionary combination of high print performance and affordability for a printer in this class, from a brand that is already established as the first choice of the jewellery design industry and rapid prototyping houses.”
